For more than 270 years, and officially since 1745, our jeweller’s shop has opened in the exact same place where it is still located today. That year, Frans Jodocus Cappaert bought the house to become a goldsmith. The name Heursel appears in the family for the first time in 1879. In 1912 the couple Augusta Heursel - Jules De Waele took over the business. The generation of the De Waele’s is still there today with the current manager Eric De Waele. Already at the age of 27 he took over the reins of the family business. The beginning of a challenge that has lasted for years and is still not over. Following in the footsteps of his predecessors, he transforms the interior and the exterior of the building into a harmonious whole between shop and home. This dream house is located in a historical strategic location in the heart of Ghent and gives the Langemunt and the entire neighbourhood the grandeur of a place where gold and platinum are still forged by hand. The course of three centuries has not changed the essence of the profession. We still work in a very traditional way.
"I don't sell a product. I sell an experience."
Eric De Waele, Managing Director/Owner Heursel
